Adult leaders

Girlguiding isn’t just for girls. In total, we have around 100,000 adult volunteers and supporters.

More than 80,000 amazing volunteers contribute over ten million hours to guiding every year. In return, we offer training and the opportunity to develop new skills.

There are many volunteer rolesĀ in guiding. Many volunteers give their time as Leaders or Assistant Leaders for guiding units and get to see girls enjoying events and activities that they have organised. Other volunteers take on administrative responsibilities, or help out with driving or maintenance on an occasional basis.

You can also keep up with news, events and developments within Girlguiding and enjoy a range of benefits by becoming an adult member.

As the largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women in the UK, Girlguiding offers a huge range of career opportunities in areas as diverse as public relations, graphic design, IT, estate management, retail and finance.
